I have designed a few Lapis Lazuli slabs I purchased in India. These are Afghanistan Lapis, the best the world has to offer. The mines are long closed, so I feel excited to have collected these.
This one is approximately1.75 x 1.75" large. The Lapis, if the quality is excellent must have pyrite inclusions. These marry together in the hundreds of thousands years of growing(stones grow) . The Pyrite is Fools Gold, showing speckles and arteries of gold . I enhanced this Lapis slab with gold colored brass Tibetan beads and finished with wiring in gold metal
